Entrepreneur Success: Critters and Creations

By: Maura McInerney Published: October 14th, 2013

If you missed the Celebration for Young Entrepreneurs, then you missed an amazing night of creativity and community support for youth businesses.  But don’t worry, we have the great video from the event.

Meet Critters and Creations

The winners of the 6-11 age category are Ingrid and Anders Martinson.  They were matched with Kristy Taddonio Mullins of Mile Hi Specialty Foods.  Watch their video here to learn a bit more about these amazing business owners:

Ingrid and Anders Martinson enjoy spending time in nature and interacting with animals. In 2010, the siblings decided to create a business out of this mutual love of the outdoors. Their polymer clay creatures were the result, and Critters and Creations was formed. They have sold their creations at several of the annual Young Entrepreneurs Marketplaces. In the next year, they hope to add more variety to their designs and start to sell their products online.

When not running the business with her brother, Ingrid, 11, enjoys reading, skiing, swimming, and spending time with her family. She also loves to travel and speaks Croatian fluently.

Anders, 9, keeps busy outside running the business as well. He plays the piano and enjoys swimming, hanging out with friends, skiing, and reading. Anders is also fluent in Croatian and loves to travel.

Watch the wonderful comments from their mentor, Kristy, and the fabulous acceptance speech by Ingrid and Anders:
